Civil Society and Public Powers : Partners for Social Economy and Solidarity

The Chantier de l'économie social, in consortium with its major partners, is organizing an international forum on social economy and solidarity (Forum international de l'économie sociale et solidaire) in Montreal, 17-20 October 2011.

This grant will support research activities related to the Forum, including a comparative study of policies and public/community partnerships that contribute to attaining economic and social development objectives. These research activities will result in six working papers, an inventory of existing mapping exercises of relevant initiatives and four case studies on co-construction of public policies in each of the four targeted countries.
